  2. I did not, actually! Personally, I'd like to get re-acquainted a bit more with Stormark, and finish off the various military reforms, if possible. But, we shall see what my heart desires as time goes on! And I shall be sure to fill out the census now.
  3. We shall soon see! For now I wish to get up to speed on the various happenings in and around Micras, and then delve into what needs fixing.
  4. I thank you very much for your welcome, and your kind words. It is always a great feeling to be so appreciated.
  5. Lady Astrid, I am doing well, and still alive, as you see. I've been missing Stormark, lately, and so I am here to see how things are with the High Realm.
  6. In the spirit of the various reforms taking place all over the High Realm, I am announcing plans for an updating of the institutions, history, and laws of the Jarldom of Sicilia. My hope is to start re-energizing the Italo-Norman-Arab roots of real world Southern Italy and Sicily, while also bringing a more European medieval atmosphere to this part of Stormark. Within the next few weeks I will try to lay out some new fundamental laws (or Assizes) to give a better form to the Jarldom as a whole. Then, hopefully, continue on with a more organized catalogue of landmarks of Sicilia, and hopefu

  8. I also would like to wish everyone a safe, enjoyable, and Merry Christmas.
  9. A belated Happy New Year to one and all!
  10. That is all absolutely true. And, honestly, I'm not totally mad at it (though I would love a job) because it has given me time to think and to explore other options which may be more worthwhile. I can't tell anyone where I will end up, admittedly, but having breathing space is probably not a bad thing in this economy.
  11. Thank you all, again. Actually, I am not in law school at the moment. I've decided to take a year or so off to get some experience and decide more precisely what I want to do in the future.
  12. Indeed! I thought of the ranks before we began discussing ideas about CBGs (or squadrons), but I was also thinking that such units would be commanded by Rear Admirals.
  13. Ah, that makes perfect sense. I shall begin a draft to be considered, with the addition of a Commandant of Naval Infantry.
  14. Also, if there are any suggestions concerning the idea of a naval high command, I welcome all to join in. In terms of ranks and such, I would say that the Chief of the Imperial Naval General Staff should likely be an Admiral or Storadmiral, the heads of fleets being Viseadmirals, and the heads of the various departments being Kontreadmirals or Viseadmirals, but that is an informal guideline. The question also arises of how to implement such a reform legally?
  15. I think that is the exact idea, spot on, Your Majesty. In essence, every micronation wants to be Prussia. However, we must face the fact the we are Britain, and we cannot master our defense until we can ensure our supply lines.
  16. Oh, to be sure, to be sure. Indeed, that is why my proposals hinge more upon operational and logistical support, rather than many different offices for show. Ironically, naval expansion was to be my next topic of discussion after a new command structure. But I feel we need officers in place to ensure we are able to oversee the expansion of the fleet, and obtain varying views where to put it, how to organize it, and even what tactics to implement given our expansive land and sea mass.
  17. Thank you, all! I hope to serve our nation well, and protect it honorably.
  18. As we are now well into the reforms into our armed forces, I would like to begin on thoughts for the reform of the Imperial Navy. One of the first things that comes to mind is, as in the Army, a need for a central high command for the administration of naval operations. I have given thought to the idea of a Naval General Staff composed of the following: - Chief of the Imperial Naval General Staff - Chief of Naval Operations (Command and Intelligence) - Chief of Naval Ordinance (Weapons and Research) - Chief of Naval Logistics and Supply (Construction, Supply, etc) - Chief of Naval
  19. I have seen that indeed! I am very happy that Lady Unna was able to take my place, she is a most able administrator and legislator. And I believe government should always be refreshed, to provide new ideas and new vigor, which seems to be plainly so. What of our foreign position, and any new internal innovations I must be aware of? Also, is there anything I need to do in terms of the Althing and other government institutions?
  20. Thank you all for you kind welcome! I'm glad to see that everyone here is doing well, especially my dearly beloved wife. If I may ask quickly, what have I missed? And is there anything I need to do to get my affairs in order?
  21. Your Majesty, I humbly thank you for your confidence in my abilities. Should I be confirmed, I shall be proud to serve you faithfully and honorably.
  22. Greetings to all! Yes, it is I, Jarl Galinn. Alas, I did not fall off the map, merely got busy beyond belief. I wanted to say that I am well, and nothing happened to me. I have now returned once again, and will to serve Stormark in whatever what I can. It's good to be back.
